`TCS = "V" * "uP" * 2200 lb"/" yd^3 `

Enter a value for all fields

The **Price of Sand** calculator computes the total price of a volume (V) of sand based on the cost per ton.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**V**) The volume of sand (e.g. 4 cubic yards) - (
**uP**) The unit price for a ton of sand

**Total Cost of Sand (TCS):** The calculator returns the total cost in U.S. dollars. However, this can be automatically converted to other currency units via the pull-down menu.

- Density of Sand
- Weight of Sand
- Price of Sand
- Price of Delivered Sand
- Compute the Volume of Material or Container based on Shape and Size
- Compute the Amount of Sand needed for a Rectangular Sandbox
- Compute the Amount of Sand needed for a Circular Sandbox
- Compute the Number of .5 ft³ Bags of sand needed based on a volume
- Compute the Price of Sand needed for a sandbox
- Compute the Weight of Sand

Cost of sand is based the tons that you order. However, you don't know the tons. You've measured the volume that you need, the number of cubic yards. The formula to compute the cost of sand is:

`TCS = V * rho * uP`

where:

- TCS = Total cost of sand
- `rho` = density of sand (2200 lbs per cubic yard)
- uP = Unit Price per ton
